Transportation Users’ Movements in Paris: Some Comments
For American transit users and activists, Chester Hartman’s account of the Paris users’ movements presents both an inspiring array of possibilities and a sobering reminder of how far we have to go before we will have an effective voice in our transit services and can steer U.S. transportation policy away from its current socially and environmentally destructive course. This inventory of diverse groups, techniques, and demands is an important guide to issues we will need to understand and alliances we will need to realize in order to create adequate political support for transportation alternatives. Public transit riders are no more organized than are postal patrons, though the crucial economic, political, and environmental significance of transportation problems make such organization more necessary by the year.
